Can't I Have It All Today?

I got a poem published in the San Gabriel Valley Poetry Quarterly issue # 56

Here is an excerpt

Have to
Make a living, I’ve got a gigantic
Mortgage to pay!
The joy
Of my future is sacrificed for what
I want today!

Why save?
The interest rate isn’t even worth it,
Why must I wait?
How come?
Can’t I have it all today, a life that’s
Beyond just great?
Why not
The latest car? Did you see my neighbor’s
Shiny new boat?
I know
I’m addicted to caffeine! Without sleep,
I seem to float.
